Qatar Airways welcomes world’s horse racing elite to Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

Qatar Airways is pleased to be the Official Airline Partner of Europe’s most prestigious horse racing event, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe 2018, which concluded at the newly-renovated ParisLongchamp Racecourse yesterday.

The spectacular event, held against the elegant backdrop of the Bois de Boulogne in the City of Light, attracted the horse racing elite from around the globe.

With a prize pot of 5 million euros, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is the richest flat turf race and features some of the world’s top race horses, while many champion purebred Arabian horses compete in the Qatar Arabian World Cup on the same day.

The award-winning airline participated in partnership with the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club (QREC) for the event, which is now in its 98th year, and is a much-anticipated highlight on the French social calendar. Qatar Airways’ renowned cabin crew was on-hand to present trophies to the race winners.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar al-Baker said,

“Qatar Airways is delighted to be the Official Airline Partner of the most exclusive event on the international annual horse racing calendar, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe 2018.

As an airline, we have a long tradition of supporting events which not only showcase excellence in sport, but which also champion sport as a means of bringing people together.

This is something which has been evident through Qatar Airways’ recent sponsorship of major global sporting events, such as the FIFA World Cup and the 2018 Asian Games, and is at the heart of our brand message – Going Places Together.

“Our sponsorship of this prestigious event also highlights our commitment to France; we proudly provide direct service to two key gateways, Paris and Nice. We welcome the many guests and spectators to enjoy the exciting races and elegant setting that mark this spectacular event.”
